Agricultural and country supply group Wynnstay has announced strong performance for the last financial year (ending 31 October 2008).

Total revenues across the group rose by 49% to £234.6m (compared with £157.0m in 2007), while group profit before tax increased by 61% to £5.22m (£3.25m in 2007).

The strong performance was put down to Wynnstay’s strategy of growing its retail and agricultural business, which included the purchase of the remaining 50% of the issued share capital of Welsh Feed Producers Limited in Carmarthen.

In January 2008 Wynnstay also acquired Wilsons Pet Centres, comprising 10 pet product superstores across the West Midlands.
